Nendo Data Clip for Elecom: Clip it Anywhere

Nendo Data Clip for Elecom: Clip it Anywhere
This USB flash drive can be clipped anywhere, thanks to the clever way that it was designed.  Since USB drives are becoming smaller and smaller, it’s gets easier to lose them. This is one of the reasons why this design makes good sense.

Camera USB Drive Takes Pictures, Videos, Music, Documents…

Camera USB Drive Takes Pictures, Videos, Music, Documents…
Photography buffs, transfer your pics and vids from one camera to another with the unimaginatively named Camera USB Drive. Measuring 2″ wide and 1.25″ tall, it looks just like popular DSLR cameras. But unlike the real deal, the most important part of this camera is the lens, not the body.

USB Bell Dings When You’ve Got Mail

USB Bell Dings When You’ve Got Mail
For some reason, I always associate email with “You’ve Got Mail,” that old nineties movie that starred Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Their romance was totally based on their virtual and online conversations, and I always remember that little old ding (or was it more like a chime sounding out?)

USB Pixel Mouse: Meta Mouse

USB Pixel Mouse: Meta Mouse
Last week, we saw computer mice in various species with removable tails that doubled as USB dongles. Some pretty creative people also decided to use them in a way that they weren’t meant to be used: as belt buckles.

OS X Lion Coming to a USB Drive Near You
I have been playing around with OS X Lion on my MacBook Pro for the last few days, and naturally I also upgraded my wife’s computer to the latest edition. But for the people who don’t or can’t download OS X Lion from the Mac App Store, there’s good news, as it will be coming to you on a USB stick too.

R2-D2 Gets Decapitated, Turned into Flash Drive
Star Wars fans with weak stomachs, look away! R2-D2 has lost his head! We’re all so used to seeing C-3PO chopped up into pieces, but the little blue and white trash-can droid has usually been the resilient one.

Swiss Army Slim USB Flash Drives Look Sharp Wihout Knives

Swiss Army Slim USB Flash Drives Look Sharp Wihout Knives
To be honest, these USB flash drives from Victorinox Swiss Army do look quite fetching. One thing’s for sure, you won’t get in trouble with taking these on a plane since they don’t include any blades.

Tokyoflash Right Angle Concept Watch Goes from Cryptic to Legible with a Flick of the Wrist

Tokyoflash Right Angle Concept Watch Goes from Cryptic to Legible with a Flick of the Wrist
I’ve been a fan of Japanese watches for years, but there’s one problem with a lot of the ones offered by Tokyoflash: most of them aren’t easy to read, which makes them counter-intuitive in my opinion.

Cool Down With Thanko’s USB-Powered Clip-on Fan Coolers
When I first saw these USB fans by Thanko, I almost wished that I were a man who regularly wore suits and ties to work so that I would have something to clip them on. Almost.

This minimal speaker was designed by Hironao Tsuboi for Kent of British American Tobacco. While I have trouble understanding why a tobacco company would need a cool and funky speaker like this, it looks pretty darned good.

Cryptex Flash Drive is a Mini Mechanical Marvel

Cryptex Flash Drive is a Mini Mechanical Marvel
When I first saw this gadget, I figured it was some sort of Cryptex designed for hiding away secrets in the bowels of a tomb or under the Vatican. But what you’re looking at here is just a really, really cool USB drive.

Card-Case Speaker: Keep a Speaker in Your Pocket

Card-Case Speaker: Keep a Speaker in Your Pocket
While I don’t know how good the sound is from this little card-case speaker from Japan is, it certainly looks nice. You’ll be able to carry around a speaker in your pocket. Since they look pretty trendy, you can imagine that you’ll end up paying a premium for it, though.

Powershovel CLAP Digital Camera: Mini-malistic
Japanese design studio Powershovel has come up with a camera worthy of challenging the CHOBi mini cam for the title of World’s Most Easily Lost Camera. The CLAP digital camera measures a mere 1.4″ x 2.8 x 0.59″ and weighs only 24g.

Gadget owners still live in a very wired world, and managing cords and cables can sometimes be a pain. On the other hand, there are instances when these wires prove too short, like if you need to reach an awkwardly-placed outlet.
